This immaculate and classy bed and breakfast lies just outside the centre of Bath - the shops and main sights are about 10 minutes' walk away - in an end-of-terrace, wisteria-draped house built in 1871. With little passing traffic, the location is quiet. The six individual bedrooms are very pretty, with colour-coordinated décor and a rather swish French country style to the furnishings; ensuite shower rooms are smart and modern. Breakfasts are a cut above, and the managers, who lived in an apartment in the house, are extremely welcoming and helpful.
The scenic Kennet & Avon Canal is yards away. You can follow the canal's towpath to Widcombe, or the other way to Sydney Gardens and the Holburne Museum.
Some of Bath's most famous landmarks, such as Pulteney Bridge and the Roman Baths, are around a 10-minute walk away.
By car: around 45 minutes from Bristol, 2 hours 30 minutes from London and 3 hours 30 minutes from Manchester. There is free parking on site.
By train: there are direct services to Bath Spa from Bristol Temple Meads (11 minutes), Cardiff Central (1 hour 5 minutes) and London Paddington (1 hour 15 minutes). The hotel is around a 10-minute walk from Bath Spa station. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
Couples looking for an upmarket bed and breakfast in a quiet spot, and are happy to have a little stroll to reach the centre of Bath will be very satisfied here. We love the light-filled and attractively decorated breakfast room, whose tables are laid out with blue-and-white gingham tablecloths and matching napkins.
Service & Facilities
Due to Bath's limited parking spaces, a great perk is the use of an on-street parking permit that is included in the rates.
- Free Wi-Fi
- Free parking
We love the extras: robes and slippers, quality toiletries from a Bath-based company, Kit Kat chocolate bars on the tea tray. Our favourite room is Number 3, Brindleys' most luxurious room, which has a bay window, wing-back chairs, a chandelier and lovely big white-painted bed.
Facilities include: ensuite bathroom with Caroline Henry of Bath toiletries, bathrobes and towels, double bed, free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee-making facilities
Food & Drink
Brindleys goes out of its way to use local produce, with eggs, bacon and sausages coming from named suppliers in the area. The cooked vegetarian option - herb and potato sausages with mushrooms and tomatoes - is very popular.
Breakfast: cooked and continental options, locally-sourced produce. Served Mon-Fri 8.30-9.30am and Sat-Sun 9.00-10.00am.
